after party tidy up
she's covered in oil after the oil tank drain plug came out, fortunately the engine didn't seize as I'd shut down coming up to a roundabout, Sean found the bolt at the start of the oil slick, Jason was carrying a gallon of morris 20-50 oil and Sumo suggested we use the fresh cut grass on the verge to wipe the oil down
the gearbox is out again to fix those leaking studs and fit a new main shaft drive seal
and fix the selector that has quite a wobble after 30 years
Oil tank Drain Bolt
and drill the bolt so it can be wired, so no more accidents
it has a dual function and supports a third bracket - not a good idea.
(the tank was already painted by this time)
the bracket stops the tank swinging on its two upper mounting bungs where they can fracture.
a little polish and back she goes
battery tray and rear caliper next - that oil got every where
oh, and the front rocker box has decided to leak big time.

Did 2 jobs this week which is unusual these days
and while cleaning one flat of detritus found this sleeping bag
which will come in useful for a certain party!
and helped to pay for Christines saddle which arrived yesterday
- go with the flow, we are on a roll.
and Simon (from surrey) said hallo and sent a pic of his shovel,
before it morphed into 'fatshov' (with a fatboy front end)

Chalk and Cheese
Trike and Model T in a suburban street
both built by Ray
go go juice
I want new pipes
On the way to Zero Exhausts in Kent
Mr Zero Exhaust's £30,000 pipe bender
legover in rural Kent
just leave it there
and I'll make those stainless drag pipes
Me, I followed Ray there in his car so he could get back.
